The return of Mourinho also signaled the return of defensive solidity in west London and the team finished with the best record at the back in the English top tier.
Up until their 3-1 second-leg defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-final they also had the best defensive record in that competition as well.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic and captain John Terry all proved themselves as top-class players and will remain, whilst the £12.5m acquisition of Kurt Zouma in January could provide some welcome cover in the centre.
However, David Luiz is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain and left-back Ashley Cole has already revealed he will be leaving this summer when his current contract expires.
It means that a new left-sided player and possibly a centre-back are on the wishlist, with either Luke Shaw of Southampton or Atleti’s Felipe Luis the most likely candidates, according to Independent.
